Hollyhocks Bare Root Planting

Dunning33 added on November 12, 2016 | Answered

I have just bought bare root hollyhocks, but weather is frosty cold and wet now. Shall I store these bare roots (how?) or shall I plant our despite weather? I am in West of Scotland. Thank you for any help or tips - much appreciated.

Bare roots can be planted in spring or fall, though if you have severe winters, spring planting is preferred.
Long term storage of the bare roots will not likely be successful.
I would go ahead and plant them out and hope for the best.
